Description

A good stop over place by my business in the high desert.
We do have electric, but water has to be hauled or come from God, one could dump in the septic, but there is a KOA better suited.

Just to be clear, please bring your own water, we have to pay to haul it in
Sorry about that.

If you need work done on the RV, good chance we can handle it.
We work on everything.

Safe overnight stop

We had no problems finding the place. Dave's directions made it easy. Slept well. Trains did come blow horns..just rumbling by. All neighbors who drove by waved and friendly. Host not there but instructed us to put payment for electricity under door on east side. Will stay again if in area.

Nice spot next to the shop

Stayed 2 nights here - there was a nice spot for the trailer next to the shop with power hookups. I didn't get a chance to meet the host but appreciate the hospitality nonetheless!

Perfect Route 66 stop!

Great location! Very easy to find and get situated! The host let us know of local attractions and felt very safe and secure leaving our camper unhooked. Would definitely stay here again!

Great Stop on the way!

Great communication and direction! Didn’t mind the train. Thanks for a great place to sleep that was relaxing and safe!

Remote

Site has electric easily available. Owner offsite. If you are noise sensitive, you will want ear plugs here as freight train runs throughout the night just 2 blocks away.

Easy peasy to find, very comfortable for a one night say over

Great location. Had we thought ahead a bit, we would have gone into Seligman first and nosed around the Route 66 stores there. Great little town. Site was easy to find, power was good and stars at night were awesome. Thank you so much.

Great spot for the night

A very quiet place to stay. They offer electric as well but we only stayed a night we passed. Thank you again for offering your place for us to stay. Thank you!

Quiet and peaceful

Coming from Phoenix, this was a deeply appreciated place for us to stay. The trains going by, the dirt roads, the rain and breeze. It was awesome. Very quiet and private. The guys in the shop showed us where to park and where to hook up and then left us in peace.

Rough road

Very convenient off the highway but please be careful of the rough road.

Exactly as advertised - safe and remote.

Spent a "quiet" peaceful night on the West side of the shop. Lots of room for any size rig. Could run the generator without disturbing anyone around - because there was no one else there.

Very pretty view to the West in this high Arizona desert . We were about 1/4 south of major train tracks, with trains going by in both directions constantly. Did not bother us but other should be aware.

Thanks for having us Dave!

Helpful

Dave was there to greet us before he had to leave for the airport. His garage mechanic helped to fix a broken weld on our bumper while we were parked. Thank you guys!

Not My Thing

This was my first stay using BW and I chose this spot for the 'ultrahost' rating and good reviews. Ultimately, I booked here hoping for just enough power to run my small fridge (after buying some groceries) and when I arrived it had been unfortunately tripped by the only other people there (very friendly awesome people, it could've been me from what the power set up looked like). It's not a park and I didn't expect the host to run over and fix it. No big deal, I had to eat some food quickly before it spoiled and run my generator for a bit.

It's just not the most comfortable place to stay though IMHO. I love train noise so even though they are constantly passing here I didn't actually mind them. A surprising number of vehicles passed during my one night (I arrived on a Tuesday and I decided to leave after one night although I planned for two), some very loudly speeding down the gravel road which made the dust/sand issue worse when the windows are open because AC is off. I also felt a little uncomfortable walking my dogs (not really sure where the off leash area was even supposed to be) due to a large plot with 'Beware of Dog' signs and multiple spaces in the fence large enough for Cujo to get through.

If you have solar as a back up, don't mind running your generator or care what it looks like where you're parking maybe this could work for you... I guess I'd rather find one of the million BLM spots in the area that are more secluded and much prettier.

Nice place for the night.

Host was very nice.

If you are a light sleeper- trains go by but wasn't too loud.

Spot was as advertised. Power available. Host was helpful when we arrived. A couple others arrived while we were there and that was fun. A couple miles from Seligman. Dump available at KOA in Seligman for $10, water fill for $5.

Nice and quiet

We used this spot to overnight on our return trip to CA. Easy to get to just 5 minute see off the I-40. The trains did not bother us and having power was a plus!

Very Handy

We pulled into the auto shop and a young gentleman showed us where to park. Very convenient to 40hwy and Route 66. Thanks for the spot!!

Simple stop, easy access.

Nothing fancy, but simple stop. Nobody around when we stayed but that's fine. We only used power. Train tracks just up the road are busy. Train every 15 to 30 min but just far enough to not be annoying. Kinda nice really.

Second restful stay in historic Seligman

Thanks again for the boondock! An easy place to go when traveling I40 near Williams and Flagstaff. We had a lot of miles to cover so we had to depart early. Safe overnight stay and we appreciate it.

We were thankful having this spot to stay with our truck problem. The shop is not open due to COVID

This is advertised as full hook, but there is a 30 amp and 50 amp, no sewer, and the owner prefers you not using the water since it is trucked in.

Great place to stop over on Route 66

Basic overnight stay. Level spot with easy access. Quiet neighborhood. Trains nearby, but slept well...not too loud. Would stay again!

Nice overnight off the 66

Thanks to our host for providing a nice spot under a brisk star filled night on our way to Flag. Instructions on where to park worked just fine. Our guest was out and about during our brief stay but we met the super nice mechanic who confirmed we were parked in the right spot. If you are a train enthusiast I recommend this spot as you will see and hear them at night. We we not bothered by them one bit. Historic town and cemetery nearby.

Easy stop

Didn’t get to meet the host but it was an easy, quiet stop. Didn’t see another living soul the whole time we were there. Easy access from off the highway.

Great stay

We had a good stay. The lot was level. We didn’t use the utilities, but they were available if we had a need. We had some truck problems, and our host was helpful to provide numbers to call his diesel mechanic if we needed help. Would recommend this stay.

Gateway to the Grand Canyon

Everything is as advertised. Dave was a great communicator. The place is easy to find, the town is on historic route 66, and is fun to check out. We had a great day trip to the Grand Canyon and would gladly stay here again.

Gracious host

Host was very friendly and welcoming. The train tracks are close so the trains are as well. They added to the adventure. We would stay again.

Safe place for he night

Dave was very accomodating and a pleasure to briefly meet. We slept soundly, lulled by the trains. Interesting things to see nearby.
A great stay and highly recommended.

Quiet spot on a SAT nite.

Great spot just off the highway, but far enough there is no sound except the occasional train which didn't keep me awake.
I missed meeting my host, but we had good, friendly dialogue vis msgs.
I'd be happy to stay again, if he'll have me.

Truck Auto Shop

Did not get a chance to meet Dave. His directions were very good. Used the 50A hookup. Train noise at night but not real bothersome. Would stay again.

Nice place

Great place to spend the night as a stopover on the trip home. Nice level spot. We were able to leave the travel trailer hooked up to the pickup.Used the electrical outlet, worked very well. Good Verizon signal. Trains pretty close, but didn’t bother. Davebeen was very easy to work with, responded quickly to messages. Thanks for the Boondocker spot.


Ravid

Quiet and safe

Davebeen is super nice and responsive!
The place is right off the I-40, and still, it feels very safe and quiet (only a train goes by every now and then).
A good place to stop when you are traveling.

Great spot on 66/I-40 for an overniter

davebeen did a very good job of Covid communication :) - everything was by messages.
Very easy to pull in and out of, a level spot where I did not need to unhook for my one night visit. Thanx davebeen, and hopefully see you on the road, when you start your own travels.

Great stay

We requested to stay same day and Dave was very accommodating. He called and gave us great directions and the location was very easy to find. My spouse is working from the road due to covid and we had great AT&T and T-Mobile service next to the garage and Dave was kind enough to allow us to work from here for the day. Thanks very much for the hospitality!

Good stopover

Located next door to a diesel repair shop. Very convenient to both Route 66 and I40. Not a commercial area as I expected it to be. Nice level area. There was 50 and 30 amp service although we did not use it. Met the owner's son who was very welcoming. Secluded area. You do have freight trains passing at night a few blocks away , but they didn't bother us at all. 5 minutes to restaurants. Thanks!

Relaxing!!

i needed an escape from the heat in the south and city noise. This was perfect for me and since the shop was closed due to the pandemic I was told I could park anywhere!. I have solar to power all I need, so no need for electric power. The breeze and wind with fresh air was perfect. I slept like a rock so trains didn't bother. Thanks again, and thanks to Boondockers Welcome.

As Advertised

Thank you for the same day acceptance for an overnight stay. Very convenient, level & safe!

I'm sorry the I wasn't able to catch anyone to give them $$$ for the 30amp hookup. I'll have to stop over next time I pass by your quaint town.

Great Overnight Spot

This spot worked great for us for an overnight stay. It was quiet and very easy to get in and out of the spot. There is a train close by but we never really noticed it. Thanks to our host for allowing us this stop.
